This Sunday we celebrate Father’s Day, a day set aside for us to pamper our dads or remember them, if they’re no longer with us. Too many children grow up without fathers in the home. How blessed many of us were to have a father in our lives!
We’re supposed to believe that it’s just fine to have no dad and only a mom, or two dads and no mom, or two moms and no dad.
How sad that the “abnormal” home is fast becoming the one with a traditional heterosexual married couple as parents.
In this century, we’re expected to celebrate the “diversity” of various types of families, no matter the cost to society.
No one will ever convince me that I would have been as well off without my dear dad to love, guide, teach, and cherish me. Girls need dads as well as boys.
Science tells us that we all do better with a father in our lives, provided it’s truly objective science, uncorrupted by political correctness, which is hard to find these days.
Numerous reports demonstrate the myriad negative effects of growing up without a father: promiscuity, substance abuse, suicide, poor academic achievement, increased criminality, intergenerational child and sexual abuse, lower IQ, confused gender roles (which too many now perceive as a positive, instead of a negative).
If you’re blessed to have a father in your life, tell him so this weekend. Thank him for being there for you. He’ll be happy to hear it out loud, from your lips. Say it while you still can.
Condolences to all who have lost their fathers: Dad, wherever you are, I love and miss you. I thank God every day that you were my father.
Happy Father’s Day, everyone!
